2023 Action Handicap Chase Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 02 December 2023

There are plenty of runners trading at single figure betting odds for this handicap chase at Newbury racecourse, with the horses competing over two miles, half a furlong. There could be as many as thirteen runners battling it out over thirteen fences, with Master Chewy installed as the favourite to claim a Saturday victory.

Real Stone is an eight-year-old who has secured a win in a previous encounter and trainer Dan Skelton not only has this runner making an appearance but also Calico. There could also be more to come from Ballybreeze who unseated his rider last time out, although the seven-year-old looks a decent contender and the same applies to Elixir De Nutz.

Master Chewy has a decent claim when it comes to the Coral Get Closer To The Action Handicap, with Nigel Twiston-Davies training a six-year-old who has been first and second in his previous two encounters. In the Jewson St Helens Novices' Limited Handicap Chase at the end of October, we saw the charge win by an enormous twelve lengths.

However, the runner was then beaten as the 11/10 favourite at Aintree and perhaps Real Stone is a better each-way alternative. The eight-year-old was on target when obliging at Haydock Park in a recent outing, with this being a seriously impressive performance which saw the horse claim a twenty-length victory.

Calico also runs for trainer Dan Skelton and the seven-year-old was able to secure a recent second-placed finish at Cheltenham out of eleven runners. Less than a length separated the runner from winner Triple Trade, with the horse having achieved victories at Southwell and Doncaster last season which illustrates his credentials.

Ballybreeze unseated his rider last time out although the seven-year-old seems favourably weighted and the horse was travelling well at Cheltenham recently when having that stumble. Elixir De Nutz was able to recently win the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter Racecourse, with the Joe Tizzard-trained charge winning by over three lengths.
